X-BOX, bad news also from the USA – Macitynet.it
Even in the US, where it had a lightning start, the X-BOX provides Microsoft with opportunities for recrimination. The bad news for the Redmond console comes from the gaming market. After having scored fairly good results in the past months, March ended with only two compatible titles in the top twenty of the ranking, to be precise on the 19th and 20th.
Really a small performance if we consider that the titles for PS2 among the top twenty most viewed game titles are nine, of which four in the top ten.
The diffusion of games is considered a crucial element both in determining the success of sales of a particular platform and in encouraging the development of new games for the same platform. According to many observers at the moment the most problematic obstacle for Microsoft is to convince developers to invest in marketing to promote games that do not seem to have a large user base.
